208.3 PROCEDURES Definitions
The following definitions apply to special employment:

Per Diem Employee—An individual who works as needed by a department and may be paid at a higher rate than a regular employee in the same job classification. 

Temporary Service Employee—An individual employed through the University Human Resources Department's Temporary Service.  Salary is determined by the Temporary Service Manager and scheduling is based on assignments and availability of the employee. 

Departments may hire special employees directly, use the Temporary Service, or request recruitment assistance from the Human Resources departments. 

Duration of Employment
Duration of special employment is based on departmental needs and availability of assignments. 

Special employees will receive employment benefits required by law.  Additional benefits may be offered to individual special employees when hired. 

Performance Evaluation
When a special employee's employment is terminated, the department will complete a final evaluation of performance.

208.4 RESPONSIBILITY Supervisors are responsible for complying with this policy when appointing special employees.
